Should churches pay tax?
It is too
easy to create
new religions (churches) just to benefit from tax exemptions - for example, making yourself the leader of the new religion and making your salary tax exempt.
It is equally easy to start a non-profit organization to claim tax-exempt benefits.
The relative ease should not create a backlash making it more difficult for good minded people to start organizations that have a clear goal and benefit to society.
